SPECTRE (an acronym for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) is a fictional organisation featured in the James Bond novels by Ian Fleming, the films based on those novels, and video games.
The Spectre is an extremely dark anti-hero from DC Comics who was infamous for exacting extremely graphic and often torturous punishments on others during his early years and continued this trend on and off into the modern age as the embodiment of God’s Wrath.
Jealous of his father’s affection for Bond, Oberhauser killed his father, staged his own death, adopted the name Ernst Stavro Blofeld and went on to form Spectre and target his foster brother Bond.
In the films, SPECTRE usually replaced SMERSH as the main villains, although there is a brief reference to SMERSH in the second EON Bond film From Russia with Love.
The Spectre has all the abilities of God, including, but not limited to, manipulation of time and space, manipulation of matter and energy, invulnerability, limitless strength, and reality alteration. Virtually anything he wishes to do to those he judges is possible.
The new supervillain this time around is a man named Lyutsifer Safin, played by Oscar winner Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”). Safin is smart, sauve and isn’t content with merely seeking revenge on various people, including 007’s latest Bond girl Madeleine (Léa Seydoux) and her young daughter.
The Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) traditionally signs documents in green ink with the letter “C”; originating with the first Chief, Mansfield Smith-Cumming (1859-1923).
noun. a visible incorporeal spirit, especially one of a terrifying nature; ghost; phantom; apparition. some object or source of terror or dread: the specter of disease or famine.
Powers. Nigh-Omnipotence/Divine Empowerment: As a servant of God, The Spectre is granted limitless power, being capable of nearly any feat within his imagination. The Spectre is said to be the most powerful, being second to only The Presence.
Thanos. Even without the Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos’ telepathy is strong enough to utterly crush the Spectre (Martian Manhunter has breached his defences, and Thanos is literally infinitely more powerful).
Bond mastermind (and real life ex-spy) Ian Fleming first introduced SPECTRE — which stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion — in his eighth 007 novel, Thunderball, published in 1961, a year before Dr. No kicked off the film series.
In the 2019–20 television season, in the crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths”, Oliver sacrifices himself trying to save Earth-38’s people. In the afterlife, his spirit chooses to become the Spectre over being resurrected in order to gain the power necessary to defeat the Anti-Monitor.
Based on the flashforward to Oliver in the afterlife, he is not the Spectre there. Yes, he is – because he is in a paradise dimension, which he clearly states he designed to be their first meeting place.
Roger Moore is remembered as the “funny” James Bond but his 007 killed Blofeld once and for all in 1981, something Daniel Craig didn’t do in Spectre. More like Moore’s cartoonish character.
Gert Fröbe spoke very little English, so British actor Michael Collins dubbed his voice. Director Guy Hamilton instructed Fröbe to speak his lines (in German) quickly, which would assist the dubbing. Reportedly though, Fröbe was speaking English in a few scenes which reduces the awareness of the dubbing.
There were many parallels noted between Bond and Safin that make him distinct compared to other villains in Craig’s era. In addition, Safin was able to achieve feats that no other baddie can boast of, all of which directly led to him being the kind of rival that Craig’s Bond can consider as his greatest foe.

A further inspiration for M was Maxwell Knight, the head of MI5, who signed his memos as “M” and whom Fleming knew well. The tradition of the head of MI6 signing their name with a single letter came from Mansfield Smith-Cumming, who would sign his initial “C”, with green ink.
What does M say about Vesper? He meant that M was right that Vesper was being played by Quantum (and her “boyfriend”) and that she genuinely loved Bond and wasn’t trying to deceive him by pretending to love him.
“Spectre” (2015) Elizabeth Swan, also has a key role in the new film’s story. In that regard, “No Time to Die” is very much a direct sequel to “Spectre,” so if it’s been a while since you’ve seen the film, you might want to brush up before catching the latest installment.Oct 7, 2021
